Hummus, Houmos, etc.
from Vegetarian Resource Center - Boston, USA


  • 4 cups chick peas
  • 1/2 cup tahine
  • 1/3 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
    (but you can cut that a bit if you want to avoid the fat)
  • juice from two or three lemons
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
    (a bit more cumin will add to the authentic "Middle Eastern" taste)
  • pepper to taste
Just put it all in a food processor, sit back, and enjoy the results.
